Having jumped to top-four after their 3-2 win in Kerala, ATK will also be bolstered by the return of their marquee player Helder Postiga who will join the side in Delhi tomorrow ahead of their match against Delhi Dynamos FC on November 14.

“Postiga will definitely add the enthusiasm to the side after our good performance yesterday against Kerala Blasters FC. He has recuperated well and hopefully will be in action very soon,” Habas added.
